Sunday night’s 55th annual Grammy Awards were nothing short of surprises. The Grammy’s are the biggest night in music where musicians and innovative ensembles come together. Before the big night, CBS sent out a statement to all attendees regarding the dress code. The phrasing CBS used to describe what not to wear was awkward in itself. Part of the statement said: “Be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered…Thong type costumes are problematic…Avoid sheer see-through clothing.” The dress code restrictions were followed for the most part, if not on the edge.
The Grammy’s were full of amazing looks but Le Chic has to name Rihanna as Best Dressed. Yes, her gown may have been a little too sheer, especially for CBS standards, but she looked gorgeous in her red Azzedine Alaia custom designed dress. We noticed many tweets comparing her relaxed hair look to her “Pon de Replay” days. Maybe her rekindled relationship with Chris Brown has slightly tamed RiRi.
There were many well dressed men and women in attendance. We, at Le Chic, wanted to acknowledge a few of our other favorite looks from the night. Taylor Swift looked sophisticated, Natasha Bedingfield was vibrant, and Carrie Underwood wowed us by showing off her curves!
Best Dressed Nominees: Taylor Swift in J Mendel, Natasha Bedingfield in EMERSON by Jackie Fraser-Swan, Carrie Underwood in Roberto Cavalli.
Although everyone was dressed well at the Grammy’s, we have to name Beyonce as worst dressed. Don’t get us wrong, she looked nice, just not for the Grammy’s. As a presenter and nominated artist sitting front row, Beyonce should’ve gone glam in a gown versus a casual pantsuit. Sorry B, but performing for the Super Bowl last week doesn’t give you an excuse to dress down for the Grammy’s!
Worst Dressed: Beyonce in Osman.
With the dress code being enforced, we were on the look out for any artists wanting to push the envelope. Kelly Rowland showed up in an unexpected black sheer dress that didn’t leave much to the imagination. Katy Perry was all covered up except for one particular area. And Pitbull joked that Jennifer Lopez “inspired the memo” when presenting the first award.
Usually the Grammy’s brings out funky and creative garments, but last night everyone kept it elegant for the most part. Aside from the gowns, all of the live performances were top notch and made for more of a concert feel. Which artist performance or collaboration did you enjoy the most?
